Unangst, Nazareth Nazareth Area Joint School Committee Formed to combine the resources and provide better facilities for the six districts — Bushkill Township, Lower Nazareth Township, Nazareth Borough, Stockertown Borough, Tatamy Borough, and Upper Nazareth Township — the joint board approves budgets and selected the site on which the new building is being erected. Working with the superintendent, the joint board has devoted many hours and much study to this project in an effort to bring about a better secondary school situation than has ever existed before in this area.

Besides serving as superintendent of the Nazareth Borough School District, Mr. Marcks has been the chief administrative and supervisory officer of the joint school since the inception of the six-district jointure of 1950. In addition to his responsibilities as chief executive officer of the Joint Board, he serves as adviser to the board in all matters pertaining to the new area high school building now under construction. He coordinates the contributions of the professional staff and works closely with the architect and the State Depart¬ ment of Public Instruction in an effort to make the new senior high school an up-to-date functional building for a type of educational program best suited to this com¬ munity. In recognition of his 46 years of loyal and devoted service to the schools and the community, the board in May of 1954 voted to name the new area high school The F. A. Marcks Building, in his honor. Dr. Lee Graver, principal, dictates to Mrs. Elaine Doyle, his secretary. As principal of the Nazareth Area Senior High School, Dr. Lee A. Graver prepares student and teacher schedules and supervises instruction and the numerous extra-curricular activities. This year the thesis that Dr. Graver wrote to obtain his doctorate degree, A History of the First State Normal School, was published in book form by the Millersville State Teachers College. 5 (Dun.

Giving its members a chance to participate in the governing of school affairs, Student Council plans social functions and helps in arousing and directing school spirit. Appointed by the president, the various committees — Constitution, Handbook, Assembly, Social, Publicity, and Boy and Girl of the Month Committee — carry out the functions of the organization. This year’s Council prepared a new Constitution for senior high school, sponsored five dances, chose next year’s assemblies, selected the boy and girl of the month, and sponsored a Talent Show. The Council elected members of the stu¬ dent body to serve as public officials in the borough government-for-a-day pro¬ gram. Besides this, several members helped in the selection of junior and varsity cheerleaders. Participating in the Pennsylvania Week Celebration, members of the senior and junior high Councils marched as a body in the Nazareth Pennsylvania Week Parade. In the third annual Talent Show there were thirteen entries. Anthony Wzontek won the 310 first prize for his piano solo, Bumble Boogie. Playing a two- piano duet, Malaguena, Nancy Boerstler and Carol Elkins won the second prize of 37.50. The two 35 third prizes went to a charcoal-faced Dixieland combo — Michael Kavcak, James Metzgar, John Schwartz and Jan Trach — and to Rich¬ ard Drosnock, accordion soloist.

In order to give an adequate picture coverage of our year’s space trip, the layout staff planned action shots for balanced and attractive spreads of all school functions. After the pictures came from the photographer, this staff measured and pasted them up for the engraver. Meanwhile the editorial staff wrote personality sketches of each senior space cadet and copy and headers for descriptive coverage of events and activities. The typists prepared all the copy for the printer. The artists enlivened our Log with sketches for the divider pages and end sheets. The business staff, in addition to selling The Comet, raised the money for its publication.

The first issue, composed of twenty-five pages of senior composition work, was mimeographed by the commercial department and distributed to the students. Beginning in 1952 the magazine, now grown to approximately forty pages of combined sophomore, junior, and senior contributions, was printed and sold to the student body for a nominal fee. Today the school magazine, published each May? consists of short stories, autobiographical sketches, light verse, familiar essays, poetry, parodies, editorials, and hook reviews with illus¬ trations by student artists. In the Pennsylvania School Press Association Contest last June, seven students won first-place awards; seventeen, second-place awards. This year the sponsors include Miss Elizabeth Sloat, Mr. J. Frederic Knecht, Mr. Robert Harding, and Mr. Robert Reichard for the editorial section; and for art supervision, Miss Jean Clute.

Michael Kavcak The annual senior class play, a mystery comedy in three acts, was presented on November 5 and 6 under the direction of Mr. Franklyn Kostenbader. A murderer, escaped from an insane asylum, and the arrival of an eccentric author complicated the departure of the young scientist, Don Carlton, who had to leave his wife Charlotte to go to Washington. 7 he insane murderer, Sheriff Preble, is apprehended by the state trooper in the thrilling climax after both Charlotte Carlton and Zador Grimes pass out. 62 feaand Ship. In Act II as Beulah Peck tests the telephone , the Professor struggles to hold Charlotte Carlton captive while “ Doc ” Ferris draws a gun on Reverend Underhill. On the night of Carlton’s departure along came three mysterious strangers — a professor, “Doc” Ferris, his gangster henchman, and Rev. Underhill, a fictitious minister. These fellows began their conniving by trying to get their hands on the formula for Carlton’s paralyzing gas. With this setting Zadoc Grimes, the author, wrote his surprise version of the story in the second act. The third act, however, was the actual ending to the story. Through an intriguing series of events the criminals, who were spies from an alien country, and the real murderer, insane Sheriff Preble, were finally apprehended by the state trooper. 4.

Completing another successful sea¬ son, the Nazareth Area High gridders placed third in the Lehigh Northamp¬ ton Interscholastic Athletic League hy winning seven games whde losing only two. Both losses, however, were to arch rivals, Bangor and Wilson. Eager to start the ’54 season success¬ fully, the Blue Eagles played host to Nesquehoning in the opening game of the season. With team spirit high, the Eagles completely outplayed the Nesquehoning eleven, beating them decisively 48 to 7. Nesquehoning managed to push across a touchdown in the fourth period against the Blue Eagle reserves. Dick Dech led the Nazareth scoring attack with three touchdowns, and Andy Leh, Jr. added six extra points. For the second game of the season, the Whitehall Zephyrs journeyed to Nazareth. With high spirits the Blue Eagles went out to avenge last year’s lone defeat. Full of fight, the Blue Eagles scored all their points in the first half, beating Whitehall 26 to 12. Don Nikles led the scoring parade with two touchdowns, while Andy Leh, Jr. made good two conversions. Nazareth’s win over Whitehall proved to be the only loss suffered by the Whitehall eleven in the entire season. In the first league game of the season, the Blue Eagles kept their undefeated streak intact and also gathered their first league win. The Hellertown Panthers were subdued easily as they managed to score only once while the Blue Eagles garnered six touchdowns. By scoring three touchdowns, Don Nikles again took scoring honors. In another independent game the Blue Eagles continued their wins by beating the Palmerton Blue Bombers 28 to 12. This was Nazareth’s first meeting with Palmerton in many felue C aale Sc uad years, since Palmerton replaced Coplay on the schedule. In this game Don Nikles and Ray Douglas shared the scoring honors with two touchdowns each. Andy Leh, Jr. made good all four extra point attempts. On the next Saturday the Blue Eagles traveled to Pen Argvl to take on the Green Wave of Pen Argyl High School. In their second league game the Blue Eagles had no trouble in disposing of the Pen Argylites. Nazareth scored quite easily, winning the game by a lopsided 47 to 0 score. Scoring on runs of fifty-two and thirty-six yards, Don Nikles again paved the way for Nazareth.

Jlund For an important league contest, the Maroon and White of Bangor High School invaded Nazareth. In this game the Slate Belt boys proved too powerful for the Nazareth defense. Laying their winning streak on the line, the Blue Eagles, not at full strength, fought hard during the entire game.

The Nazareth offense proved too powerful for the Emmaus Green Hornets. The entire game was domi¬ nated by long runs by Nikles, Dech, and Douglas. However, the most spectacular run was made by Ray Douglas. On the first play from scrimmage he ran sixty-seven yards through the Emmaus defense for a touchdown. With this early touch¬ down against them, the Green Hornets lost their fight and the Blue Eagles won quite easily. Getting back into their winning stride, the Blue Eagles downed the East Stroudsburg eleven by a score of 46 to 12. Nazareth primed its scoring machine for Wilson by scoring seven touchdowns. This game proved to be a repetition of the Emmaus game, featuring many long runs. On the second play of the game Don Nikles broke loose and ran eighty-five yards for a touchdown. Dick Dech grabbed the second half kick-off and, behind perfect interference, ran eighty-seven yards for another touchdown. Leading the scoring parade were Dick Dech and Don Nikles with four and two touch¬ downs, respectively. After a ten day lay-off, Nazareth and Wilson met on Thanksgiving Day for their annual contest at Cottingham Stadium in Easton. Naz¬ areth needed a victory over Wilson in order to secure a league co-champion¬ ship. But the Wilson Warriors had other ideas and dominated the play most of the game. Nazareth had one sustained drive, down inside the Wilson ten yard line, but lost the ball on downs. In spite of all the team’s efforts, Wilson’s scoring machine pushed across four touchdowns and when the whistle sounded, the score stood 25 to 0 in favor of Wilson. 79 Nazareth defensive players bring down a Whitehall man.

The Eagles got off in fine form with the first victory over Whitehall in ten years. The season’s record was highlighted by two big upsets — one over Parkland and another over Fountain Hill — and the setting of a school scoring record of 99 points against Pen Argyl. By defeating Parkland, the Eagles dealt a tremendous blow to the Trojan’s first half bid for the Lehigh-Northampton League championship. In the second half Fountain Hill, riding a thirteen game winning streak and having won the first half Carl Roth goes driving through the air for a layup. title, was stunned by a 63-59 upset at the hands of the Blue Eagles. In the second last game of the season the team, with five boys hitting double figures, broke the school’s previous high team scoring mark of 94 points by walloping Pen Argyl’s Green Waves 99-31. The Eagles then closed out the season with a victory over Philhpsburg. The team was most successful with a slow deliberate type offense and a variety of pressing zone defense. Bob Mengel led the team in scoring with 234 markers, followed by Dick Dech with 227, and Carl Roth hitting 207. Wayne Altemose and Harold Heckman completed the regular line-up and finished with 167 and 126 points respectively. VARSITY BASKETBALL SCHEDULE December 3 — Whitehall. Opt. ...33...

The Bullies , captained by Stevie Nichols and Pat Heidenwolf, won the 1954 hockey champion¬ ship by defeating the Korn Kobhers and the Muskrat Ramblers. The individual high scorers for the season were Pat Heidenwolf with four goals, Margie Check with two, and Nancy Boerstler with one. In a close basketball game, The Bouncing Blues , captained by Pat Slutter, beat the senior team, One Red Bird , captained by Elaine Buss, by a 16 to 10 score to win the 1955 basketball champ¬ ionship. The high scorers for the season were Pat Slutter with 73 points, Maryann Lesher with 39, and Polly Stimmel and Joan Kratz with 17. The Gophers , captained by Phyllis Happel and Dawn Lichtenwalner, beat The Boomerang Kids , 18 to 10 to win the 1954 volleyball championship. The Intramural Council, consisting of the four senior sport managers, and the president, the vice- president, and the secretary elected by the girls, have charge of the intramural program. The Council helps in the selection of the cheerleaders, plans the intramural program, and approves the awarding of letters. The Junior Varsity cheerleaders were on hand at all the home J.V. basketball games to cheer our team. This year has been the first time in ten years that the J.V. squad has been made up of six new girls. All the girls’ sports and the cheerleaders are under the direction of Mrs. Margaret Heckman.

Marcks prepares to cement the cornerstone of the new high school budding on December 11, 1954. Located astride the boundary line between Nazareth Borough and Upper Nazareth Township on a seventeen acre tract adjacent to the present athletic fields, the new senior high school will serve the approximate 14,000 people of the six districts. Beginning with the 1955-56 school year the senior high school will occupy this modern build¬ ing, eliminating the crowded condition in the present school. The F. A. Marcks Senior High School Building as it appeared on April 1, 1955. This building will have approximately twenty- five classrooms, home making and health suites; library, 663 capacity auditorium, 800 capacity gymnasium; shops, art, band, and audio-visual rooms; and a cafeteria with a seating capacity of 200. Because of the increased advantages afforded by the building, an expanded curriculum for the area students will be possible. 94 £ a« r £ ■ .- 1 I J (Du . £Uoj%j%in f NAZARETH NATIONAL BANK AND TRUST COMPANY Nazareth, Pennsylvania To make next year’s Christmas a merry one, do as other Nazareth Area High School students have done; join our Christ¬ mas Club.
